Perhaps there is an incorporated entity that has such an embalming law but I seriously doubt it. Check out homefuneralmanual.org/northcarolinaresources and you will be amazed at how liberal the laws are in North Carolina especially regarding burials on unincorporatedland.
In such a situation, coffins are not even mandatory and the requirement for burial only stipulates that the body be covered by 18 inches of earth. It seems that one can act as his or her own funeral director and deal with the local Health Department in the matter of getting a death certificate and other possible bureaucratic requirements. Also search online for Consumer Funeral Alliance for more information. This research was a real eye-opener for me.
